Online consultation for the next GMR is now open

published 3 March 2014 updated 10 March 2014

The 2015 Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report (GMR) will provide a definitive assessment of overall progress at the national, regional and global level toward the six EFA goals that were established in Dakar, Senegal, in 2000. EI strongly encourages its affiliates to participate in this consultation.

The assessment will establish whether the six goals were achieved and, if not, whether progress slowed or accelerated since 2000. It will pay particular attention to gaps between those groups that benefited from progress and those that did not. This assessment will provide lessons for the framing of post-2015 education goals and strategies.

An online consultation has started and will continue for the next six weeks. The views of researchers, academics, governments, non-governmental organisations, aid donors, teachers, youth, and anyone with an interest in education and development are extremely welcome.

Report objectives

The 2015 EFA GMR will review how much the EFA movement has contributed to ensuring that all children, young people, and adults have benefited from the right to an education that meets their basic learning needs.

The Report will:

  • Identify the big changes that have taken place in educational policies and programmes since the World Education Conference in Dakar vis-à-vis the six EFA goals highlighting the factors behind these changes, including the role of the EFA movement
  • Assess to what extent such policies and programmes were successful in making progress towards EFA objectives
  • Analyse how the present policy environment may influence the achievement of a more ambitious education agenda after 2015 and what monitoring tools will be needed.

EI: Contribute so your voice is heard

“EI invites affiliates and teachers worldwide to share their views on the forthcoming 2015 EFA Global Monitoring Report,” said EI General Secretary Fred van Leeuwen. “Make sure that your views are heard!” It is crucial that the education sector helps in understanding what lessons can be drawn from the EFA movement as a new international education agenda is taking shape, he added.

You can use the online consultation or, if you would rather email your comments, or have attachments of documents or data that you would like to share with the GMR team, send them directly to efareport@unesco.org with #edpost2015 as a subject heading.
